the art critic

This is Hobbes, my cat. He loves to eat, sleep and ART CLASS. Hobbes jumps on the art table while i’m teaching children. He watches, tries to pick up a pencil. He is looking at a baby foot print (4 month old baby)

Some girls decided we should make Hobbes. I chose Zen Doodling b/c the girls are 6-9 years old. This is my example. We are going to cut the Hobbes out when he is complete & place him on a painting we create…soon. Anyway, if you are stressed & loved to doodle as a child, it is now a form of art. Just google Zen doodle & see all the amazing things people have created. You really can’t mess it up, thus no stress picking up a blank sheet of paper. When you begin, you Zen-out.

Vermont through his eyes

I live in Alabama. Sunday afternoon, i spent working in my gardens–because it was 68 degrees. i had perennials peeking up through the dirt, and yet…i envied Kip’s thigh deep Vermont snow.

I love Kip’s photography & he is generous enough to share them with me.
